    Everyone will have heard of it. It can be fitted with a feature that automatically steers towards moped riders.

    It's only a matter of time until car companies start working more overt punctuation (hyphens are pretty benign) into their model designations, so I vote for calling it the Geely Geelous?.

    Well, if the Chinese name (loosely) translates to "Fun Colorful," here were my ideas:

    -Vivid
    -FunCo
    -Chromatik
    -LuZi Hong (Combines Mandarin words for purple, green, and red.)
    -Rainbow
    -Spectrum

    The Geely Hazzard of course. It's what they want.

    In those shorts the woman's definitely trying to imitate Daisy Duke. She's even climbing out of the window in the last picture! And the vehicle is orange. How many more clues do you need. :p

    Not sure what she's doing with that flare though. Perhaps it's used to signal someone if you break down.

    100% theft-proof because you can't steal a car that can't be seen.

    This is a good point. After you said that and I looked at the photos, I realized that she might be asian. I think the sunglasses are on to make it unclear.

    But if the Dukes are what they're going after, I think the Geely Lee would be the right name.

    If they bring out one in a different colour every week, we got us a car.

    Ah yes, that probably sounds better. But only if it's fitted with the correct horn though. :)

    Surely the first is far far worse than the latter, or do Americans say it in a more AUP-friendly way? :D

    Also... it was a shame not to see the venerable Pajero get a mention ;)
